2 Years and Counting

Out of all the places we visited this week (and trust me, there were a LOT of places) this is my favorite. This is in Shasta county. We did a mile and a half hike through some gorgeous woods. I adored it.

We're headed home now. I had a wonderful time but I'm so ready to be home. I miss the kids like crazy and I'm ready to get out of the freaking car. I told MM next vacation we're just going to go sit on a beach somewhere and do nothing.

As glad as I am to be heading home, it's kind of a downer too. I had a great time visiting friends and family and I'm sorry we're leaving them. It also sucks because today is me our wedding anniversary.

2 years ago today we vowed to loved one another until death do us part. Since we're both still alive I figure this is cause for celebration. Course it's kind of hard to celebrate in the car...

We aren't planning to do anything for our anniversary. This trip was sort of an early anniversary trip, plus MM bought me a nook and a Kindle, so I figure we're good. Though I wouldn't mind a week on a beach to recover...(hint hint MM).

Dear MM,

You are maddening and infuriating and you drive me to distraction. But I love you more than my life and can't imagine being without you.

Happy Anniversary, babe. Here's to another 70 years of wedded bliss.

Your loving wife,

Holland

Bittersweet

MM and I are smack in the middle of our vacation. We've covered a lot of ground over the last few days, visiting friends and exploring towns.

Northern California is so different from Southern Cali. We spent the last couple days in the mountains. Being back in the hills and snow reminded me of home. Don't tell MM, but I really loved it. Of course I only loved it for the 2 days we were there. Visiting for a day or two and living there are two different things.

Now we're heading to my brother's house for a few days. We're going to stay with a friend (I can't wait! It's been way too long since I saw her) and explore wine country and the coast. I'm really looking forward to it. After that we're heading more to the north to check out the redwoods. It should be great.

Even though our trip is going well, today is kind of a bittersweet day. MM and I are very blessed. We're in a beautiful area with friends and family. I know this.

But I should be at home, maybe checking into the hospital, getting ready to have a baby. Today should have been my due date.

I still believe everything happens for a reason and Peanut just wasn't meant to be brought into this world. That doesn't do much to relieve the knot in the pit of my stomach or the tears that well up when I see baby clothes and toys today, however.

This too shall pass. I know. But today is just a bittersweet kind of day.
